Report bugs and requests for THIS DISCUSSION BOARD here!

Over the next few weeks I'll be adding more functionality to this discussion board. It will probably look very different when it's all done. Please report any errors here and I'll try to get to them. Also, you can post any suggestions, though I can't guarantee I'll get to everything.

Things that will be coming soon
thread paging
list threads in order of last post
support for linking and the like
cookie to mark unread postings
aesthetic format improvements
avatars
change time zone

of course, i can only work on these things after I catch up with the chapters.

For instance, I can't edit the mis-spellings in the above posting.

and now I can.

yea an edit feature would be really nice. It would also lower the number of reposts and allow people to add to thier post if they decided to later

i think that since this is a discussion board, maybe threads with no posts for two weeks should be retired or deleted. not right now, since its just starting up, but later when it gets a lot bigger.

some tagging supported

Posted by jasonblue, 12:38pm, 19 Aug, 2005

I have implemented a tiny bit of special formatting, as follows...
use the square brackets [ ] around the tags with no spaces

[ red]red text[ /red]
[ b]bold text[ /b]
[ spoiler]spoiler tag![ /spoiler]

There might be a few more, and I'll get linking and stuff up sometime, and I will document all of this soon in the form post area.

(just testing...)

If the board does get to be big, a search feature would probably be handy; just something to locate threads by their name say.

I love the "image view" feature by the way.

Actually, I'd like a cookie to mark (or unmark?) unread chapters -- I found out the hard way that skipping ahead only checks off the previous chapters whether you've read them or not.

Yes! I can totally fix that!

It used to e that only your last chapter was recorded, but now I have to keep track of clues found per chapter. I can certainly change things to show you where you've been adn haven't been.

Jason, this may be too much work, but it would be nice if we recieved e-mails or some sort of notification when either their is a new thread/post to the message boards, or when someone replies to one of our posts. Let us know.

just a suggestion but now that story 5 is over...related threads should probably be taken off...and getting ready for story 6! woot!
